Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder sued for altering song


Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is being sued by Gordon Peterson for "eroding the integrity" of his song "Hard Sun" when Vedder covered the track for the "Into the Wild" soundtrack. Universal Music is also named in the suit. The changes were very subtle and only involve a few lines in a couple of the verses (see below).


Gordon Peterson version

When she comes to greet me
she is mercy at my feet
When I stay to pillage her
She just throws it back at me
Eddie Vedder version

When she comes to greet me
she is mercy at my feet
I see her inner charm
she just throws it back at me
